Pulpit Supply

The Pulpit Supply List of the Presbytery is for the use of churches when seeking persons to fill pulpits in the absence of their pastor. Pulpit supply is intended to be a Sunday-by-Sunday relationship.  If a church intends to invite the same preacher for more than 3 consecutive weeks in a given month, Presbytery approval is required through the Commission on Ministry (COM).  If this situation occurs because of an emergency or time constraints, the COM must be informed.

  • The minimum fee for pulpit supply:
    • $150 per Sunday for one service, plus actual mileage at the IRS professional rate.
    • $200 per Sunday for two services, plus actual mileage at the IRS professional rate.
  • The minimum fee for moderating sessions of churches without a regular pastor: $50 per meeting plus actual mileage at the IRS professional rate.
  • The IRS professional rate is 67.0 cents per mile for 2024
